I am at work and just realized that my angles are swollen -- my right ankle is more swollen than my left. I don't know of any reason -- no accident or injury. Is there anything I can do to self access the situation or just call the doctor? Thanks mds18

Soak your feet and ankles in a bucket of hot water with "epsom salt" for about 30 minutes. That stuff works wonders. You can pick up epsom salt at any over-the-counter drug store. That's what i'd do.

:d hi, don't worry. This is probably to do with sitting for long periods. The only way to alleviate oedema in ankles and feet is to raise your feet higher than your hips, ie, by sitting with your feet up on a chair. This will allow the fluids which have accumulated in your fet and ankles to drain back into your bloodstream. Massage aslo helps as long as it is towards the heart, and done gently. Good luck
